The town will be rebuilt on its old foundations; the mansions will be splendid again. 
Thanksgiving will pour out of the windows; laughter will spill through the doors.

    Being Driven vs Being Led

    February 28, 2019

    Are you more of a person who is driven…driven to succeed, driven to perform, driven to make things happen or are you the type of person who is led… led by your instincts, led to find your sweet spot, being in the right place at the right time?  It is often more easy to recognize a driven person because of how they get things...

    The One Unplanned Pregnancy That Saved Us!

    December 18, 2018

    I was really struck by this post and it reminded me just how scandalous the birth of Jesus would appear from a human perspective.  This was the viewpoint apart from heaven coming to earth. It was the unplanned pregnancy that saved us!  This is the birth that brought us to the place of full salvation. 


    However, from God's...

    How's Your Serve?

    September 11, 2018

    I’ll never forget the time Sharon and I were on staff at a camp all summer as the program directors and getting challenged to give at the end of our ministry there.   One of the board of directors stood up and spoke to us from Malachi 3:10 and challenged us not to rob God with our tithes and offerings.  I was thinking to...

    Pursuing Freedom In Love

    September 3, 2018

    Sharon and I had the opportunity to connect with a couple who were dealing with an evil presence in their home this past week.  As we prayed, the Spirit brought to Sharon’s attention the parable of the house swept clean in Luke 11;25; Matthew 12:44  It is about a man who experienced freedom from demon oppression only to find...

    The Father 'Abba' Heart of God

    August 28, 2018

    This summer I was able to be part of Frontline Ministries BBQ’s in the park at Holmesway in Acton.  It was honestly a real joy for me to be there and become a human jungle gym to the children who showed up every week.  What I discovered early on is that many of these children come from single parent homes and they literally...

    How Do You Wake Up??!!

    July 10, 2018


    What happens when you wake up in the morning?


    For some of us, it’s a rude awakening right?  The alarm clock goes off and you are jolted out of your sleep.  You jump out of bed, hit the shower and crank the heat, clean up and then grab a cup of hot coffee and you are good to go!


    Now, for others,...
